We were both wearing iron. I had level 30 enchants but my companion didn't. I had a super powerful bow and smite IV sword as well. I think we also had strength and fire protection but nothing else aside from milk buckets. It was really surprising because I had done a fight a week or so prior with a few guys and we annihilated him right away with similarly low level stuff. In 1.8 I'm certain we could have taken him on but with the 1.9 nerfs to armor and delayed attacking it was impossible. We had to kill him with a command or he would have destroyed the entire server (we didn't keep the star).
Which mob do you talking to? Wither?
1.9 tip : Use shield, it really helps. Even you can survive the creeper explosion without damage.
OT : Please make a poll about it!

I'm a programmer. I use C/C++, BASIC, Assembly, and Python. If i sound too technicial, that's because it's the way i think.
It started thundering so I lured five or so creepers behind me and just walked along, waiting for a thunder bolt to hit them. I didn't anticipate the skeleton with a punch II bow right in front of me. You can probably guess what happened, and I hate skeletons.
